Donald Trump, Alex Jones, and Rupert Murdoch Agree on Pausing Syrian Refugees

The video above is from Alex Jones’ Infowars. It defends Donald Trump’s position on the refugees and shows that people in the Obama Administration admit that we don’t have a way of vetting them. The video is especially good because it points out the absurdity of Huma Abedin presenting herself as a positive example.

But consider another person who has spoken up in defense of Donald Trump:

The Hollywood Reporter points out:

The media mogul’s implication that the U.S. should have a pause on allowing refugees into the country while it “fixes vetting” is not a new idea. The House of Representatives recently voted to ban Syrian and Iraqi refugees from entering the U.S., calling for tougher screening measures.

However, Trump’s request to bar all Muslims from entering the country has been met with indignation and disdain.

Murdoch backing Trump on Tuesday was somewhat unusual as the media mogul has been critical of the GOP candidate in the past, especially on his immigration views.  In July, Murdoch said Trump was “wrong” about his outlook on undocumented immigrants.

“Mexican immigrants, as with all immigrants, have much lower crime rates than native born. Eg El Paso safest city in U.S. Trump wrong,” Murdoch tweeted. 

Since Murdoch has no love for Trump, and defends immigration, we can safely say he is not defending him because of emotional attachment or xenophobia. He has looked at the security situation dispassionately and he has decided that, on this issue, Trump is correct.

This puts the moral outrage that has been displayed against Trump is some perspective. It seems people want to deal with what he said emotionally and encourage others to do the same. They don’t want you to think about the security problem or about the government’s duty to protect the people.
